Wegovy, primarily formulated with semaglutide, boasts an FDA approval and is primarily prescribed in the battle against obesity. Its mechanism is designed to mirror a hormone that modulates areas of the brain that govern appetite. Falling under the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists class, its application extends to diabetes treatment as well.

The spotlight on semaglutide’s efficacy in weight management is intensifying. Medications such as Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus, Trulicity, Mounjaro, and Saxenda, initially crafted for diabetics, are now being acclaimed as innovative weight reduction agents. Notably, while tailored for those grappling with obesity, a rising segment of non-obese folks is gravitating towards them to aid weight loss. It’s essential, however, to acknowledge the inherent risks of any medication. The frequency of adverse event reports has been climbing, and it’s no surprise that lawsuits pertaining to Wegovy are surfacing, including right here in Ohio.


The pharmaceutical giant Novo Nordisk, with roots in Denmark, is the firm behind Wegovy. If you live in Ohio and had problems after taking semaglutide, thinking about suing Novo Nordisk might be a good idea. Potential courses of action might encompass a product liability case, anchored in allegations such as negligence, inadequate disclosure of risks, manufacturing oversights, or other germane legal contentions in compliance with Ohio’s legal framework. If you or a close relative have suffered from complications following Wegovy administration and are considering legal avenues against the maker, fill out the free case evaluation form below to find out if you have a case:

The prospect of joining in a Wegovy class action might be tempting. However, often, in scenarios involving profound health ramifications, championing an individual lawsuit might be more propitious under Ohio legal statutes. Such a tactic could not merely streamline the resolution process but might also culminate in a more generous compensation amount.


If you’re under Wegovy treatment and face ongoing gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, bloating, or stomach aches, an immediate consultation with your medical professional about the possibility of gastroparesis or protracted gastric emptying is advised. The FDA has chronicled a series of grave health adversities. Below is a catalog of some of the gravest potential side effects associated with Wegovy (semaglutide):

  • Gastroparesis: Commonly labeled as “stomach paralysis,” this ailment impedes the stomach’s ability to process food appropriately.
  • Pancreatitis: Denotes a condition where the pancreas becomes inflamed. While infrequent, it can be severe. Symptoms encompass intense abdominal discomfort, nausea, and vomiting. Prompt medical care is essential.
  • Gallbladder Complications: Those taking Wegovy could encounter an elevated risk of gallstones or inflammation of the gallbladder. Typical symptoms include intense abdominal discomfort, fever, or alterations in skin color.
  • Kidney Concerns: Studies suggest a potential association between semaglutide and kidney complications. Warning signs include nausea, diminished appetite, or reduced kidney performance.
  • Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar): Diabetic individuals on insulin or other glucose-reducing drugs may discover that Wegovy can lead to dangerously low sugar levels, potentially causing disorientation or increased heart rate.
  • Allergic Manifestations: There’s a possibility for some people to have pronounced allergic reactions to semaglutide, with symptoms like skin rashes, swelling, or respiratory issues.
  • Thyroid Tumors: As a GLP-1 receptor agonist, Wegovy has associations with an increased risk of thyroid C-cell tumors, encompassing forms such as medullary thyroid carcinoma. Worsening Diabetic Retinopathy: Wegovy can amplify certain existing diabetic eye-related conditions.
  • Visual Disturbances: Changes in vision or other eye-related problems.

We urge Ohioans to remain vigilant and proactive in their healthcare choices and, if impacted, seek the legal redress they deserve.
